I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I hope; my soul waits for the Lord more than those who watch for the morning, more than those who watch for the morning.  (Psalm 130:5-6)

Dear Father:

While You created human beings
with the need for relationship,
I never realized how wonderfully
You would fulfill my need.
Thank you for my husband.
Thank you for his tenacity and strength.
Thank you for his incredible talents.
I pray that I would always be thankful for him,
And to him.
May our marriage continue to press on
in the worst of the worst and
in the best of the best.
May I give thanks for my love to You…
and to my husband.

Amen.

God,

Thank you for your unconditional love for me.  I am so undeserving, yet you pursue me daily!  Thank you for your grace and for your perfect provision.  I am so blessed and grateful for my life and for my husband’s life.   Thank you for trusting us with each other’s hearts, blessing us with the covenant of marriage. You have given us an opportunity to love each other unconditionally and sometimes that is hard to do, but I ask Lord that you would help us to love like you love.  Please show me how to be a joyful wife, a compassionate wife, a humble wife, and a truly forgiving wife. I pray for wisdom. I pray that you would equip both my husband and me with whatever we are lacking so that we may bless each other and be a beautiful example of a healthy marriage to other couples. Help me to understand that my expectations for my husband may never be met, that he is human and capable of sin.  Give me a discerning spirit and the courage to speak truth into my husband’s life, which will encourage him.  Keep words of disappointment and regret, lies from the enemy, far from me. Lord, if {insert husband’s name} is struggling with anything, specifically {insert a struggle} please remove it from him.  Heal my husband and give him a strong desire to seek after you.  I pray that he is the spiritual leader of our family that you have called him to be.  May your characteristics manifest in him as he grows in his relationship with you. God I ask that you would protect our marriage, keeping Satan and his ways far from our family.  Holy Spirit walk with my husband today, call out his name and reveal yourself to him.  I pray that our love for each other continues to grow deeper and deeper every day.  Please grant us time to spend intimately with one another, and especially time and desire to pray with and over one another! I pray for restoration in our marriage!  May you be at the center of our marriage FOREVER and EVER!  Reigning in our hearts, motivating our love and guiding our actions! In Jesus Name AMEN!
